Now france are producing some decent if not ordinary tennis players, but it's difficult to see where the next home grown title winner will come from.Will Mary be the last, or is she regarded as being french?

Mary wasn't really French. She was a Canadian (just look at her name).

France has nothing to do with her results.

If Kim turns Australian, most Belgians will still consider her a Belgian tennis player.

Also, I don' think players like Lendl, Seles and Navratilova are American.

BTW : Linford Christie, Lennox Lewis, Zola Budd, ... are not British, Ben Johnson was Jamaican, ...
